Hello I have a question about identity theft my boyfriend discovered about a year ago that his mother fraudulently opened credit cards in his name about six years ago. He was hesitant to report her because he didn’t want her to go to jail, so he allowed her to continue to make payments on the credit cards and she said she cut them up and promised to never use them again.
Well his mom is now using the credit cards again and my boyfriend finally realizes she can’t be trusted. He wants to report her but is afraid that it will look like he is complicit in the crime since he knew about it for a while. His goal is to get the credit cards out of his name once and for all and he doesn’t have an issue filing a police report. Will he be able to get those cards off of his credit report or will the credit card companies not help him because he knew about the fraud and didn’t report it?
